Playground Partners
Party in Your Playground Event 2011

NEW YORK, New York (May 25, 2011) It was a sunny day in more ways than one at the Heckscher Playground inside Central Park. Over 1,000 children, moms, dads and grandparents enjoyed the annual Playground Party hosted by the Women’s Committee of the Central Park Conservancy’s Playground Partners. Guests were greeted by a stilt walker, juggler and bubbles.

The Party Chairmen were Kathryn Beach, Hannah Buchan, Jessica Oliver, and Nina Whitman. The Grandparents Committee Chairman was Eleanora Kennedy. Playground Partners Committee Chairman Kamie Lightburn and Women’s Committee President Gillian Miniter were there with their families.
The event, partially sponsored by Milly, was a family-friendly fundraiser with music by the Brady Rymer Band and Hope Harris and The Cousins Jamboree, Magic Al, Eloise at The Plaza, Eleni’s cup cake and cookie decorating, Funky Monkey Snacks, a bouncing Belvedere Castle, rock climbing walls, painting, hula hooping, marionettes and storytelling, fishing pools, official Central Park and NYPD vehicles to explore, relay races and more. There was a delicious buffet featuring many sweets and treats.

A good time was had by all including Central Park Conservancy President Doug Blonsky, Anne Harrison, Yesim Phillip, Nancy Missett, Betsy Messerschmitt, Karen LeFrak, Nancy Paduano, Diana DiMenna, Nyssa Kourakos, Michelle Smith and Andy Oshrin, Virginia Apple, Sheri Babbio, Vicki Foley, Alexia Hamm Ryan, Jill Ross and Suzanne Johnson.
Best of all, $365,000 was raised to support Central Park Playground Partners, a group of families dedicated to keeping Central Park’s 21 playgrounds safe, clean and well maintained.
